HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 cc98-9W
69. Mr. Platts-Mills

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what foodstuffs and raw materials at present required by the United Kingdom are available only from countries which demand either in whole or in part dollars or gold by way of payment.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

There are no foodstuffs or raw materials of any importance which are wholly imported from hard currency areas.
